Today I have the honor of hosting Morgan Huneke to help her reveal her lovely cover for her upcoming book! She also graciously answered three questions about herself. Other bloggers are also a part of this cover reveal tour. Check out the details here.
About the Book
“No one can mysteriously disappear leaving no trace. It isn’t realistic.”
“You’re right, Emily,” her grandfather said thoughtfully. “It isn’t realistic. However, a good many things happen in this world that are not realistic, things supernatural.”
Emily, Allan, Jill, Joey, and Anna have grown up on their grandfather’s tales of ancestors who mysteriously disappeared from Creighton Hill, the plantation home that has been in their family for centuries. When Grampa’s death forces them to move into Creighton Hill, the truth about the supposed disappearances is the first thing on their minds. Allan, Jill, Joey, and Anna’s, that is. As for Emily, why must they keep at their supernatural hogwash?
Could it be that their family really does just have an unusual history of early deaths? Most people seem to think so. But Grampa’s research has uncovered something different.
When mysterious writing matching descriptions found in ancient accounts begins appearing to the children, they know something’s up. They must find out what really happened to their ancestors, and work together to discover the reason behind the mysterious writings.
Creighton Hill is the first book of the Time Captives trilogy, a tale of faith, family, fantasy, and a fight for truth and freedom.
Without further ado, here is the gorgeous cover!
What is your main goal in your writing? Do you write for pleasure, to reach others, for money?
If I wrote for money, I would have stopped a long time ago. 😉 I write both for pleasure and to reach others. I’ve always loved stories and my mind has always been full of my own fictional people. I love learning their stories, whether I actually write them down or they remain in my head (I’ve lost some good ones by not recording them 😛 ). But I also want to reach people. God gave me a gift of writing, and I ought to use it for Him. Stories are meant to be shared, but there’s more to it than that. I don’t even know how many times I’ve understood something theological because I was able to relate some story to it as an example. I want to be able to supply those examples and teach through fiction (in a natural, non-preachy way). It is my prayer that, even if I never hear about it, at least one person would be inspired by my books to learn more about God and dedicate his or her life to Him.
How would you describe yourself in three sentences or less?
I am a Christian, conservative, politically involved, history loving writer, who is also an aspiring violinist. I am a later-this-month-19-year-old homeschool graduate, and the oldest of three girls. I love to babysit, I make a lot of my own clothes, and I want to do my part to make America a Christian nation once more.
Does your role in your family affect your writing at all?
I’ve never been anything but the oldest, so I don’t know how it would be different if I wasn’t, but I’m sure it has. A lot of my characters tend to be the oldest, though there are times where I give them older siblings because I wish I had some. I can’t really think of any other specifics, but my birth order and the responsibilities that come along with it are a large part of who I am, and that spills over into any characters into which I put some of myself. I don’t know if this has anything to do with family roles, but my youngest sister tortures her characters a lot more than I do mine.
